The Letter MP3
(Wayne Carson Thompson)
Not that this song had to be redone. I mean, the Box Tops version was amazing enough (it helped win a talent show for my band The Dimensions back in something like 1966-yes we are that old!). The Joe Cocker version (with probably more credit due to Leon Russell), ditto, amazing. That guitar hook/riff in the beginning is ripped off from Leon Russell’s piano licks in the Cocker version. Always used to fool with it on the guitar and just felt compelled…
Me on all the instruments, vocals, and drum editing.
